Orchesis

Orchesis is the Resurrection dance team. The team is currently coached by Ms. Esther Moss. It has been two years since the school has been able to host a dance team, and although Ms. Moss hosted a dance club last year, this year the dance program and team have grown tremendously and have had the opportunity to put on multiple shows and showcases.

Orchesis is a team that girls must tryout for. They have two practices a week with Ms. Moss and also work towards the dance show each semester. Additionally, each semester Ms. Moss picks two students to choreograph two pieces to allow the students a chance at the creative process. This also allows students to create something on their own that they are proud of and lead their teammates. Orchesis also performs at various school events, such as, 7th Grade Experience Day, pep assemblies, and much more. 

"As their teacher, it's always amazing to see them grow in such a short time through each dance. They always come in a little worried about their capabilities and by the time the show rolls around they are always so excited and enjoy what they have created together," said Ms. Moss. "This class is not like any other here at RES and I'm honored I get to work with these young ladies to create a space where they feel safe to express themselves in movement. I hope for the program to grow more and blossom into something even bigger."
